• WorldSkills International: Developing Skills for Success

    Dermalogica, the skin care brand researched and developed by The International Dermal Institute, recently had the pleasure of partnering with WorldSkills International, the not-for-profit membership association that champions excellence in vocational education training. Dermalogica’s brand heritage and history of education fits perfectly with WorldSkills International and their stance on the importance of vocational training, making the partnership quite the match!

    Dermalogica was a proud sponsor of the Beauty Therapy category at WorldSkills International’s training competition in Leipzig, Germany July 3-6, where we provided products for skin treatments, as well as in-person training, for 26 competitors from 22 different countries! The competition takes place every two years for nearly 50 trade skills, and this year proudly marked the 42nd event.

    Elsewhere at the competition, attendees were invited to an interactive area called “Discover your Skills,” in which they were exposed to skills they may one day wish to explore. Dermalogica offered Face Mapping®, MicroZone® demonstrations and a “Hand Bar” for attendees to experience a treatment with our products.

    We are thankful to all involved in making our program a success, especially our education teams in Germany and the UK, who were an integral part of our achievements! We also wish a big congratulations to the winners of the Beauty Therapy skill category:

    Two Gold medalists:
    Mei-Hui Fu, Chinese Taipei
    Catherine Boey, Singapore

    One Bronze medalist:
    Lovisa Petri, Sweden

    Look for Dermalogica at the 2015 WorldSkills International competition in Sao Paulo, Brazil!
